The private room at this hostel was clean and simple. Easy access to the subway and a short walk to many great restaurants. You can also walk to the Dalong night market. Free bananas are always a good thing!

Hi, thank you for the review. But there's some misunderstanding here, Dalong night market is quite far away from our place, if you go by walking, probably takes you 1-2 hours :) We are more near by Shida night market, about 15 minutes walking. More

This hostel is nearby dongmen MRT station very central. Easy to get everywhere from that location. The hostel itself is very, very clean (you have to wear skippers inside or you can walk bare foot as it is so clean). Staff is very friendly and helpful and doesn't bother you if you want to stay quiet. And banana night and... More

I had total three visits in this hostel. Stayed in the 16-bed dormitory. All beds have private curtains, so they felt like large capsules. The staff is very friendly and willing to help. Good location near a transfer MRT station. And free bananas, of course.

Stay here for only 1 night, but the atmosphere is nice with friendly staff :) It's very close to train station, prefect location for people want to eat around in Taipei. I stay in a 16 peoples dorm room, it's little bit scary when I made the booking, but it's surprising me the room is not bad, everyone having private... More

Absolutely love this hostel, great location - just 5 minutes walk from Dongmen Station. Love the layout of the room, feels very personal and clean. And of course, free bananas every morning to start my day! Definitely will come back here the next time I am in Taipei!

An excellent choice for youth on backpacking trip. Despite the shared facilities, hostel staff make it a point to maintain the facilities' cleanliness. It is very comfortable for stay with the individual cubicle curtain and also a locker for temporary safekeeping of lockers. There are a few flights of stairs but this shouldnt not pose any issue for young people.... More

Although Taipei was an addition to my plans the stay was one of my trip highlights. The hostel itself is fantastic. It is wonderfully decorated, clean with great service and the rooms are more than expected. Adding to that a great location to walk to main sights or use the metro right next to it. If I come back, will... More

I’ve backpacked around the world for 15 months and stayed in countless hostels, but Banana Hostel is the cutest I’ve ever seen! (It’s also my first one in Asia to be fair) but you will fall in love with it. The hostel is clean, cute, new, modern, has very spacious bunks in the shared dorm (not bunk beds, think gigantic...
